Job Purpose

Swimming has a key role in both the Gordonstoun Curriculum and Broader Curriculum and is very much seen as an essential life skill that our students should have. Swimming is available to our youngest students in year 2, right through to our year 13 students. Whether it be learning to swim or competing at an elite level, Gordonstoun aims to cater for all and provide opportunities for progression. The Swimming Coach is the central role in coordinating the swimming programme in partnership with the Sport and Activities Coordinator, both for the senior and junior schools. The post-holder must be a qualified Swim Teacher/Swim Coach and hold a Royal Life Saving Society Qualification (RLSS) and National Pool Lifeguard Qualification (NPLQ).
